Journal of African Cultural Studies

The Journal of African Cultural Studies calls for panel proposals for the ASAUK2020 conference.

The stream has as its focus African culture, performance arts, visual arts, music, cinema, the role of the media, the relationship between culture and power, popular cultural studies in and from Africa, sociolinguistic topics of cultural interest, and culture and gender. We especially welcome panels and individual presentations that show evidence of understanding life on the ground, and that demonstrate local knowledge and linguistic competence.

We invite papers and panels that engage with topics around the politics and ethics of knowledge production, including papers and panels on all aspects of life linked to African universities such as the located histories of the disciplines, campus societies, campus novels and campus films. We shall continue the conversations started in 2020, and now published in the “Ethical?! Collaboration?!” issue of the journal (2019 issue 3, see https://www.tandfonline.com/toc/cjac20/31/3?nav=tocList).
